After she used slurred speech in Sunday’s online simulation competition, NASCAR will send driver Hailie Deegan for sensitivity training.
When playing the iRacing event on Twitch, I heard Deegan say: “It’s funny. Oh, yes, who is behind me? Please don’t do that.”
19-year-old Deegan apologized for the incident on Twitter, but NASCAR confirmed on Monday night that this would require her to complete the plan before the start of the 2021 season in February, when she will begin her The first full-time season. The Camping World truck series drives a Ford F-150 for David Gilliland Racing.
DGR did not comment on the incident, but Ford said that she “admitted this mistake, has apologized, and promised to be more considerate in the future.”
A spokesperson for iRacing told Fox News that it does not comment on individual members, but its community standard code does not allow the language type used by Deegan, and the chief steward of the platform can reach out to anyone who violates the platform to solve the problem. .
